Magda Laguinge Covers Oyster #102: The Peace Issue — On Sale Now!

Our first biannual edition hits the shelves today.

The very first biannual edition of Oyster is on sale today, and in the pages we give peace a chance.

We chose Argentinean model Magda Laguinge to be our peace postergirl this issue. While she's walked for all the big guns from Givenchy to Chanel, the mega-model maintains a chilled attitude and strives for world peace by being "truly happy with things that are real and important in life." For the cover story, she was shot in New York by regular contributor Cara Stricker and styled by Sasha Kelly in the freshest Spring 2013 looks (spot the Chanel face sticker!).

Also in fashion, Tumblr pop princess Grimes wears an appropriate mix of Prada and PAM, photographed by Rene Vaile and styled by Mark Vassallo. Mark also applied his mad fashion skills to a BMX babes menswear story shot by Zac Handley— because sometimes you're most at peace when you've got three feet of air. Adding to the harmonious mix of editorials, Bruna Kazinoti did a menswear story beachside in Barcelona.

Meanwhile, photographer Ryan Kenny and stylist Zara Mirkin returned to her motherland, the nirvana that is New Zealand. Against a backdrop of nature's pure blue they shot their 'Long White Cloud' story. We also made a pilgrimage to Israel where our Editor Alice Cavanagh and photographer Robbie Whitehead floated in the Dead Sea. 

Music-wise, we spoke with New Wave goddess Debbie Harry, man of the moment Kendrick Lamar, legendary rapper and producer Big Boi, and, fittingly, Atoms For Peace's Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich. 

We also feature peace pioneers Amma, the woman who has hugged more than 30 million people, and Chinese activist Sheng Qi. You'll find musings on motherhood care of Elke Kramer, a profile on Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, a beauty story by Marton Perlaki featuring new faces Soo Joo and Nora Shopova, and the launch of our Editor-At-Large Alice Alexander's special Silence project.

Amongst all this and the other killer content, we even managed to squeeze in a sneaky sausage dog (turn to page 175 if you like baby animals). 

Pick up a copy and peace out!
